New renders claim to show Nokia's first smartphone with a hole-punch display, which may be known as the Nokia 8.1 Plus. The device has a hole-punch for its front camera in the upper left corner of its display, and there are slim bezels on the top and sides of the screen. There is a bit of a chin below the display, with enough room to squeeze some Nokia branding onto it.
Around back we can see a vertically stacked dual rear camera setup with a fingerprint reader below it. There's another Nokia logo on the back of the phone as well as an Android One logo, suggesting that this device will run a fairly untouched version of Android and will get guaranteed updates from HMD Global.
Spec details for this upcoming Nokia phone are largely unknown, but today's report does mention that the screen could measure 6.22 inches. We can see ZEISS branding on the rear camera setup as well as a USB-C port on the bottom of the phone and a 3.5mm headphone jack up top. The dimensions for this device are said to be 156.9 x 76.2 x 7.9mm.
We've said before that hole-punch displays are likely to be one of the top smartphone trends of 2019, and this upcoming Nokia phone helps to prove that. Many smartphone makers embraced the notch in 2018 to help reduce bezels on their smartphones, and the hole-punch will help them shrink their devices' bezels even further.
